A Woman of the World

"I am the first, best champion of Emily's genius." - Mabel Loomis Todd

Best known as Emily Dickinson's posthumous editor, Mabel Loomis Todd is a woman of the world.  Priding herself on being an inspired conversationalist, she invited scandal by enjoying a glass of wine in mixed company, and by enjoying the company of men other than her husband--sometimes in the company of her husband. Now in her 70s and living on Hog Island in Maine, the accomplished journalist and naturalist regales us with tales of her storied life, spilling secrets and revealing the true nature of her relationship with one of America's most celebrated poets

Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman's world premiere play is brought to the stage in this insightful and impassioned tour-de-force performance by one of theater's most beloved performers, Kathleen Chalfant.
